WHWN Ask What Are Your Thoughts on HipHop? Mun says, "It Seperates Artists & Stops Good Callobos"



WHWN ASK: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON HIPHOP?

It took a few for me to put my thoughts up here because what he said is so true: HipHop separates and it puts great artists together...Run DMC and Areosmith's "Walk This Way" is one of the best examples. I mean, how many great artists haven't performed together because of a beef or label dispute? HipHop has transcended all music to become the one sound or "stuff" that all music tries to emulate.HipHop is deeper than what anyone wants to admit.  It is as shallow as Darwin's gene pool and as deep as The Abyss.

Here is another artist I am proud to call my brotha, who's always keepin it all to real and all too funny at the same time.  Here is Muneco "Mun" Medina, as I always promise to do...in his words unedited or interrupted.  Enjoy!!
